Designing the right shaft for an application is not easy without CAD software and in-depth technical knowledge. igus has now developed a free-of-charge and freely accessible online tool with the drylin shaft configurator.

The tool allows the user to select the right shaft in the required length, in diameters from 6 to 50 mm from seven materials, machine the main body and the machined ends with standard elements such as chamfers and grooves, and order the configuration. The surface treatment can also be chosen. In addition to hard-coated aluminium shafts, hardened or chrome-plated steel shafts, several hardened stainless steel materials and VA shafts are also offered.

In the second step, the user can machine the shaft body and optionally the machined ends, and add different machining stages as well as 14 standard elements such as bevels, holes, threads or grooves. An intelligent system gives the user maximum and minimum values, which prevents faulty design. The clear surface of the tool, hints and tips make the configuration of the shaft easy for the user.

In the last step, the user gets an overview of the configuration. Here they can request a quote and delivery time, and download the dimension drawing and CAD data of the product. There is also the possibility to save the configuration or to share it with colleagues via a link. After receiving the order, it will be sent digitally to the factory, where the shaft will be manufactured by igus and sent to Australia.
